Everyone is a little bit racist, even 300

Tehran has made their official critical review of 300, and they think the movie is psychological warfare for a fight against Iran. Iranian newspapers had titles such as “”Hollywood declares war on Iranians”.

I haven’t had the time luxury of seeing the film yet, but reading the original comic I didn’t leave feeling Iranians heritage was insulted. In fact, I was pretty impressed with the Persian’s empire and their leader, Xerxes. I mean, he had to be placed on quite a pedestal to lead that many legions of men to expand the empire. That commands respect.

I’m not going to doubt the movie was western-centric. But still, common, a declaration of war from Hollywood? For shame.

  1. The comment that this movie has anything to do with the war in Iraq is ridiculous. It’s just some reporter trying to make a story out of nothing.

    It’s a movie based on entertainment, nothing else.
